If you’re addicted to highlights but now want something a little lower in maintenance OR craving a brighter more enhanced overall blonde for your next salon visit!
These new blonde techniques are the perfect addition to help you achieve your blonde hair goals.
1. Tipping Out
Have you ever had a full head of highlights and still wanted to be brighter and blonder by the end of your appointment?! Well, this is the perfect solution to enhance your blonde throughout the body of your hair.
Tipping out is a free hand balayage technique that is specifically applied to the mids and ends of hair left out of the foil.
This technique is a great lightening option if you were wanting to achieve a total saturation of blonde on the ends for an overall brighter blonde result.
2. Basin Bump
Alternatively, the Basin Bump technique is very similar to the Tip Out technique but performed at the basin with wet hair.
Applied after the highlights have been rinsed out to bump up to a brighter blonde, preparing the hair for a toner.
This is a great option for brightening ends which have already been lightened in the past but need a soft lift.

3. Root Shadow
Have you been addicted to highlights but now want something a little lower maintenance? Say hello to the root shadow! We aren’t afraid of regrowth over here when it’s blended and all naturale looking like this.
The ultimate technique to ‘blur’ or ‘shadow’ at the root area where the highlights and natural colour meet. The Root Shadow is subtle but effective!
4. Root Tap
Similarly, to the Root Shadow - the Root Tap is designed to blur the stitch marks and softly blend the highlights with your natural regrowth colour by deepening the shade of the hair closest to the root by 1 – 2 shades deeper for a softer grow out and more natural overall look.
5. Root Stretch/Melt
If you were looking for a more live-in blonde with even less maintenance, the Root Melt is for you! The Root Melt eliminates the line of demarcation, where the highlights start and end.
This does give the overall appearance a deeper tone however it makes the blonde areas POP in colour.
